R2AK Day 8 – At the halfway mark

Colin has reached the halfway point to Ketchikan. He’s now anchored in a cove on Denny Island just a few miles south of the check in point at Bella Bella.

He’s had a good couple of days and has really been able to separate himself from the nearest small boat with a 100-mile lead. Plus, he’s gone through some of the most dangerous sections, including crossing from Vancouver Island to the mainland.  He still has 350 miles to travel but he’s getting there.

There are still 19 boats racing to Alaska and all but one of these is behind Colin.  So far he’s the first boat small boat and well as the first boat with 2 or fewer people.  Let’s hope that Colin and the boat stay safe and he can maintain this pace.
